BURLINGTON, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan man is scheduled for surgery later this month in California on his abnormally large scrotum, the result of a rare condition.

Dan Maurer's scrotum has grown to a size that makes it impossible for him to work or walk more than 40 feet at a time. It is agonizing for him to drive.

Though variously estimated at 50 to 75 pounds in size, the Burlington resident says he doesn't know how big his scrotum is anymore.

He tells the Battle Creek Enquirer "it's depressing enough without weighing it."

Maurer's surgery is set for Aug. 28.

It'll be performed by Dr. Joel Gelman of the University of California-Irvine, one of the few surgeons in the country who can perform an operation to fix the condition, called scrotal lymphedema.

This is amazing. Start working at home with Google. It’s a great work at home opportunity. Just work for few hours. I earn up to $100 a day. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out Fox81.com
